DAE is an interactive 3D file format used for exchanging digital assets between various 3D modeling systems and game engines.
The DAE format was created using COLLADA XML architecture, which is an open standard for transmitting digital assets between graphic applications, and now owned and developed by Khronos Group.
The following software can be used to view, alter, and process DAE: Bentley Systems MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk 3ds Max with the ColladaMax plugin, and Autodesk Maya with the ColladaMaya plugin.
A SLDPRT file contains a 3D part created in the SOLIDWORKS design software.
Multiple SLDPRT parts can be independently modified and combined into a single SLDASM assembly file. If one SLDPRT part belongs to several assemblies, then after modifying it, the changes will appear in all assemblies.
SLDPRT are proprietary files with closed specifications. Nevertheless, some APIs (like CAD Exchanger SDK) provide the facility to read and convert them to other formats.
In addition to SOLIDWORKS software, SLDPRT files are supported by Autodesk Fusion 360.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
